Better than his debut.

In fact the world building is excellent. Might my favourite far future Cyberpunk setting I've read so far. You have flying taxis and invisibility shields.

Another book by Robert Reed that suffered for the plot. It's packed with great ideas about terraforming and altering the human baseline, but the plot is way too thin and spread out.
